Duration of Memberships

A USA Climbing membership (valid from September 1st through August 31st) includes access to all sanctioned competitions. For those of you who only attend a comp or two, you have the option of Day-member pass for a fee of $10 per comp, but you will not be eligible to advance to Regionals if you do not purchase an annual membership by the close of Regionals registration for the respective discipline.  


Day-Member Pass

For the infrequent attender, $10 per comp will get you ranked for that comp and will put you in the overall USA Climbing database. 

Competitors who have not registered for a USA Climbing annual membership before attending a Local competition will be subject to the $10 Day-member fee.

If you pay the Day-member fee only, you will not be eligible to advance to Regionals.  If you wish for a Local competition to count towards your 2 competition requirement for Regional Championship eligibility, you MUST purchase an annual membership prior to the close of Regionals registration for the respective discipline.  Any Day-member Fees you have paid prior to the purchase of an annual membership will NOT count towards your annual membership fee.
